The Great Lakes Fishery Commission is a binational organization established in 1955 by the Canada/U.S. Convention on Great Lakes Fisheries to coordinate fisheries science, control the invasive sea lamprey, and facilitate cooperative fishery management among state, provincial, tribal, and federal management agencies. The Commission’s strategic vision is centered around three pillars reflective of the duties charged under the convention. Dr. Muir will provide an overview of the Commission’s science program and by highlighting new and exciting science initiatives, discuss challenges and opportunities of delivering a multinational science agenda in the 21st century.
